Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network Pulled From DISH Network

At 11:50pmET last night, Dish network viewers lost Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network after negotiations on a new carriage agreement failed. Fox says DISH dropped the channel “prematurely.” Dish says “21st Century Fox blocked DISH customer access” to those channels.

“It is unfortunate that the millions of Fox News viewers on DISH were used as pawns by their provider, says Tim Cary, EVP of distribution for Fox News. “Hopefully they will vote with their hard earned money and seek another one of our other valued distributors immediately.”


If Billo barely scrapes three million in prime time, I hardly think the subset of Foxbots just on Dish qualify as 'millions'.

2. "IQ of DISH Subscribers Rises"

Seems like that would happen if the FoxPAC News viewers had to find real, credible sources for information.

3. DISH should slide another news network in that slot in the meantime.

Heck, rotate them, for "equal time" and all. Some of those bozos probably won't even notice at first, and maybe it will enhance their worldview.

Those stations are not on my favorites anyway, so I don't even have to look at them when channel surfing.

Republicans should pay Dish to carry Fox.

Directv would drop Fox but that will not happen, they are owned by FIX Murdoch and the cronies.
Now we see what happens when you have the consolidation of the airwaves.

22. Unfortunately, it's all just a renegotiation game. Same happened with CNN/HLN

The CNN hiatus lasted 2-3 weeks. And Dish is really snarky, blocks the channel and names the slot, "CNN (or whomever) removed themselves" or somesuch. Plus, Dish substituted the Glenn BecKKK outlet in HLN's slot.

I started with Turner Vision 20-25 yrs ago. Then it turned into EchoStar (or was it vice versa), then Dish. Back then Dish seemed to be the politically and economic alternative to MURDOCH (then) owned Direct. But Dish seems to have ugly work culture (too), with the owner being alleged on the net to be an Ahhhnuld type who held fundraisers for Hillary then voted Rethug, horrid to employees.

29. Singular did permanetely remove Viacom (The Daily Show)

 

from its lineup and added Glenn Beck. This also included the children's Nickelodeon channel. People called but it was all about the money. Hell, you can get an HBO app and a couple more now. Cable is fighting for its life.

When my folks came to visit, my dad had to go cold turkey because I didn't have any cable or satellite or whatever, just what the antenna picks up. I swear my dad had withdrawals. I did provide him with a radio so he could listen to Limbaugh, to take the edge off.

28. Its the internet that is eating into the cable companies and providers profits.

 

Cable TV will be a creature of the past in the future no matter how much either side cable or entertainment providers wish. The people at YouTube know this very well. Many people lives have been changed, now its time for the media dinosaurs to become extent.

40. My local rinky dink cable service dropped Fox sports it also dropped digital service.

 

A sign of the times. It doesn't matter much to me since I do so much on the internet. They did this instead of rasing prices and after a customer survey. Lots of Dish users here especially among the majority Latinos so the cable company did what it could. We have had a couple of cable companies to go out of business in the area.
